Top Gear WAS on in the US last year, for a handfull of episodes. My 
buddy and I being gearheads watched the show religiously, and really 
digged every episode until they abruptly canceled it. He was so mad 
when they canceled it, that he wrote an angrey letter to the 
Discovery Channel (who were carrying it)...

They said that they planned on releasing an American version of Top 
Gear that better resonated with American audiences. One that 
included American hosts, as well as exclusively American vehicles. 
We wrote back that it was the hosts' wit, and open opinions, 
combined with the fact that American cars are boring are what made 
the British show so entertaining. And who told them that Top Gear 
wasn't "resonating" with anyone anyways? We never heard back.

For anyone who's never seen Top Gear, it's an great show! Without 
ruining it, I'll tell you now what I learned from it:
1. I'd buy a Renault for safety any day. Preferably a Clio V6.
2. Toyota trucks have won me over as far as ruggedness is concerned.
3. If I ever chose another sports car than my DeLorean to drive, 
it's going to be the Ariel Atom.
4. I have no worries about being struck by lighting in my car.
